I can’t believe the town I grew up in has such a cute modern restaurant! No shade to Bloomfield, but it is the average quiet suburb. Republic is a great addition for those who love a strong cocktail, great food and a lively environment. I’ve been in the past for a birthday gathering, as well as happy hour, and enjoyed myself those times as well. This time I visited to celebrate another birthday and the drinks were still top notch. I literally only needed one of whatever this delicious cocktail was, lol! It’s a brisk Spring here in CT so we did not get to enjoy the outdoor seating, but thats a cute setting for a summer happy hour. There is also a location Downtown Hartford which has enclosed outdoor seating and awesome interior decor. I highly recommend the BLT Squared (huuuuge BLT) as well as the fries which come with some sort of magical spicy ketchup. This spot is definitely number one place on my list to grab a drink and a bite if you’re ever in Bloomfield!
Happy Birthday to my sister! Both she and her the restaurant’s interior design are cute!
After enjoying Republic we went downtown to Max’s Downtown and discovered what is now our favorite wine: Elio Perrone Bigaro. Check it out!
